Who doesn't love animals? Who doesn't like fun? Give your parent or loved-one with Alzheimer's a casual iPad activity this holiday season!
“Odd Animal Out” provides people living with dementia, such as Alzheimer’s, with hours of enjoyment. Don't get us wrong: Its "play mechanics" do engage and stimulate the mind, but that's not the up-front focus here. Things are more casual.
The play mechanics are simple: The player has to find the animal that’s unique in a jungle full of other animals. It’s not as easy as it sounds, especially when there are a lot of them!
• The visual elements that are essential for successful navigation and activity-play are sufficiently bright, distinct, and large for our senior audience. We employ a Participatory Design approach, so our apps are all designed WITH - not FOR - people living with dementia.
• It utilizes an infinite-play structure, meaning that the player can play as long as they like per session.
• Although it’s very much like a classic game, it has been designed to decrease a sense of competitiveness by not keeping a formal score or fostering a sense of “winning” or “losing.” This can help reduce stress in some folks with dementia.
• Players can casually track their progress using the Level tracker, but it's not a prominent visual element.
• Players receive a positive feedback animation and sound effect at each successfully completed level.
